Directed by Stephen Frears | 1986

With Saeed Jaffrey, Roshan Seth, Daniel Day-Lewis

This Oscar-nominated comedy, set in Thatcher-era South London, charts an unlikely romance between the son of Pakistani immigrants and a local punk who’s only recently dropped out of a white-supremacist street gang. With a screenplay by Pakistani-British novelist Hanif Kureishi and starring Daniel Day-Lewis in a breakthrough performance, My Beautiful Laundrette reveals the pleasures and pitfalls of looking for love in a diverse world still criss-crossed by internal borders while also providing comedic social commentary on sexuality, social class, and immigrant enclaves. Featuring a supporting performance by veteran English actress Shirley Anne Field.
